Gray may very well be an ace if he pitched in a different home park, but unfortunately, he does pitch half his games in Coors and as a result, is really only useful in half his starts. Even that that, he is still worth owning.

Anyone could be forgiven for giving up on Gray, whose ERA climbed as high as 4.74 in May without the typically low FIP. Coors can't take the blame for his volatility; he has posted a 3.35 ERA at home and a 4.29 ERA on the road this season. His Jekyll and Hyde profile has persisted into 2019, but he has lured buyers back in with a strong stretch before the All-Star break. He lowered his ERA to 3.92 at the All-Star break with six runs allowed in four starts. Having collected 115 strikeouts in 108 innings, he might be worth the hassle for daring managers. However, this is likely another hot streak rather than the long-awaited breakout.
